What You Need To Know About Divorce
The Woodlands Divorce Guide
from the local Shea Law Firm
Mistakes are expensive. When it comes to divorce, where you are dividing up property and debts, as well as access to children, mistakes can be VERY EXPENSIVE.
If you make one of those mistakes you could easily be looking at a loss of over $50,000 that you could have prevented. Want some examples?
If you think getting divorced is easy because it's uncontested, then I recommend you sit in on any of the pro se dockets in the 418th District Court. First, you'll be there for a couple hours. Second, you will see a steady stream of people who took time off of work hoping to finish their case only to be sent back to try again because of mistakes they made.
Some of the most common mistakes range from issues with citation, unusual visitation schedules, and mistakes with either the decree or pleadings. The judge isn't going to sign his name on something he doesn't like.
When you work with me you can avoid those pitfalls and put your case on the fast track.
You have to wait 60 days to finalize a divorce in The Woodlands. You can't change that even in an uncontested divorce.
But in order to finalize your case as soon as possible you need to jump through all the right legal hoops first.
If you mess up one of those steps (or more than one), then your uncontested divorce can end up taking a lot longer than 60 days.
When you work with me I get you through the legal maze as soon as possible so you can get on with your life.
We are talking about uncontested divorce here. If you hate each other and want to inflict as much financial and emotional devastation on each other as possible then this is not for you. But if you want to get on with your life, let's look at what makes a case an uncontested case.
If you do not meet those requirements, then you're not quite an uncontested divorce.
You can look at either a Collaborative Divorce to resolve any sticking points or you can go the litigation route if you are really far apart in desired outcomes. I'm a problem solver, not a shark, so I can't help you with the nuclear litigation option.

They sure are tempting. And if you think every legal document is the same I can understand their appeal. But, let me tell you, every document is not the same even if they have the same title. Forms can work sometimes and for some people but that is like the truism a broken clock is right twice a day.
So, while I wouldn't trust them with my family member's case, are they good enough for you?
There are some huge disadvantages with trying to use generic forms.
